‘Stop Embarrassing Nigeria With Your Dance,’ – Group Tells Senator Adeleke
A social-political group, Movement for New Nigeria has criticised the Senator representing Osun West Senatorial District, Senator Ademola Adeleke over the incessant display of dancing skill wherever he goes.
The group made the assertion in a press statement signed by its National Coordinator, Comrade Sunday Kelani, a copy which was sent to NigerianMonitor on Friday.
The statement noted that the senator has taken it as a tradition to dance at any event he attends instead of contributing meaningfully to National issues as a lawmaker of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
It chided him for, “taking the dignity of the legislature for granted” adding that he is no more a private person, but a public office holder of high echelon in Nigeria.
“The routine dance of the Senator representing Osun West senatorial district is becoming a big embarrassment for people of his constituency and Nigerians as a whole.
“Instead of making appreciable contribution constructively to nation-building, Senator Adekeke is busy dancing across the country rather unabatedly.
“The place of the legislature in a democracy is too important and serious for any of its members to resort to a mere entertainer and official dancer.
“This attitude of the lawmaker is highly unbecoming of a man with that political stature, this must stop as a matter of importance and exigency.
“There is a limit to how a politician could go to impress the people outside the specified statutory obligation through performance; the earlier the senator knows that his dancing step is no more catching the fancy of anyone the better for him, ” the statement said.
